Post Male Breast Cancer

I am a 22 year old male, and have been having pain in the left side of the pectoral(breast). It hurts mainly when i touch it and sometimes when i breath.
I feel somesort of a lump around the nipple area. It is not noticeable. Its been hurting for about a few weeks. Does anyone have any idea what this can be. I am a smoker, and realize that might be a possibilty but any other input would be greatly appreciated.
When there is a lump and it is cancerous is it supposed to hurt at all..
Thank you

Danny

Hi dj,

I'm a 26 yo breast cancer survivor -- my lump didn't hurt at all. There are a lot of factors that go into symptoms like location and size of the lump. When did you notice it? Has it changed in size recently?
